Better than being unemployed
Inventory Associate (Current Employee), HamiltonNovember 7, 2012
Pros: meet new people, kinda interesting work, career potential
Cons: minimum wage, no work stability, some 10 hour shifts
For a minimum wage job, the actual work itself is not too bad, even enjoyable - way better than sitting at a desk stressed out on the phone.

WIS makes the work challenging with a system for tracking how good you're doing compared to everyone else on the team.

Kinda fun meeting and working with other people. And yes, there is career growth potential. – more... The company basically does everything right in terms of company culture. If you only have high school of less, could be a good company to hitch your wagon to.

But....

The company's operations revolve around inventory gigs. Most clients only get inventory done once every 6 months. So they have no work... you have no work. (For Inventory Associates, anyway.)

After getting hired, I worked 3 days per week for 2 weeks.... then no work for 3 weeks.

They have you sign a document when you get hired that says they don't have to follow standard laws for breaks and overtime, etc.

So they may work you for 10 hours straight, with only a couple 1/2 hour breaks....then give you no work for 3 weeks.

Better than being unemployed. – less

NO LIFE AND NO SUCH THING AS A TEAM HERE
Inventory Manager (Current Employee), ALBERTA, CANADAOctober 23, 2012
Pros: use of a company vehicle
Cons: a lot
AVERAGE 80 HRS / WEEKLY AS AN INVENTORY MANAGER

IN ORDER TO MOVE UP YOU MUST RELOCATE

24 HRS ON CALL AND NO OT/NIGHT PREMIUM

NO LIFE, YOU NEVER HAVE A SET SCHEDULE WHEN YOU CAN EXPECT TO ARRIVE HOME. YOU BRING YOUR PLANNING AND PAPERWORK AT HOME 90% OF THE TIME

NEVER HAD A REVIEW AFTER WORKING FOR ALMOST A YEAR. NO MENTIONING OF SALARY INCREASE – more... EVEN YOU ARE ONE OF THE TOP PERFORMERS.

PROCEED WITH CAUTION. – less

Pros: change in pace daily.
Cons: lack of hours.
Many days working with the company we worked in teams.This at time made each of feel accountable for a shared work effort.I would say the hardest part of the job was the long ride to various sites. The management made everyone feel warm and cared foe personally.

Inventory Associate (Current Employee), Houston, TXNovember 17, 2014
Pros: the work houres are flexible
Cons: the travole time
The WIS account I am a member of requires me to be at a different Kroger’s locations daily. Ones I arrive at a given store, the team divide up to begin inventory count. After inventory has been taken, I am responsible of all store discrepancies. Ones the discrepancies have been taken, I input work data into work equipment. I enjoy been around customers – more... and interacting with people daily. – less

Inventory Associate (Former Employee), Fairfield CANovember 17, 2014
WIS is a poorly ran business. They treat their employees like slaves. Sending us on trips for numerous days for minimum pay. Makes it difficult to contact supervisors for information. Just a bad place

Inventory Associate (Former Employee), Richardson, TXNovember 16, 2014
Pay is too low for the rigorous work that is involved. Was lied to by one supervisor when first hired on and then to be told the complete opposite when job review time came up. Hours were too sporadic. Some jobs were few and far between. New area manager played favorites with specific employees.

easy work
inventory specialist (Former Employee), Eugene, ORNovember 13, 2014
Pros: easy work
Cons: crazy hours
come in and count as fast and accuratly as possible
that faster is not always the best way to count
managment generally to busy
co workers generally to busy
hardest part of the job was getting a sku check
best part was seeing how fast you could count merchandise

Wasn't very organized
Inventory Associate (Former Employee), San Diego, CANovember 9, 2014
Would wait for a van to pick us up at 2am. Drive to different stores and count inventory. We were set on a timed schedule of how many products we counted in an hour. I learned the art of counting many different products in an efficient manner with deadlines. Hardest part of the job where the hours and being on your knees for hours. Management handled – more... themselves professionally. – less

Field Representative (Part time until March 2012) (Former Employee), Nashville, TNNovember 8, 2014
It was just bad timing for my needs and the compensation was fair but just wasn't enough to pay my bills. Management and supervisor were great people and really easy to work for. They wouldn't leave you behind if you didn't understand something.
